“My baby. She is only 7 years old. My mini-me. The light in my heart. Words don’t exist for what this feeling is. My family is shattered. Please pray for us. Pray they press charges on the dog’s owners & hold them responsible,” Sadie’s mother, Haley Anselmo, wrote on Facebook.

“RIP my sweet Sadie Elizabeth, 7 years old & taken from us most violently. The world is a cruel place. You were the light in my heart,” her father, Mikey Davila, wrote in an Instagram story.

Woodlawn Elementary, Sadie’s former school, described her as a little girl who was “blossoming in the dawn of her life.”

“Sadie was fierce and spunky, but she was also tender-hearted and kind,” her teacher, Grace Feucht, said in a statement. “She brought energy and joy into my class every time she stepped in the door. She was fearless and would sing her heart out in front of her classmates.”
